Key Ingredients in Annmarie Kaolin Micro Exfoliant.
Aloe Vera Juice – Many of Annmarie Skin Care products contain a base of aloe vera juice and for good purpose. Aloe contains over 75 nutrients alone including: amino acids, which support the skin’s integrity, vitamins like A, C, and E which are all powerful antioxidants, and beautifying minerals calcium, copper, magnesium, zinc, and polysaccharides, which have deep hydrating effects on the skin. The naturally occurring “saponins” in aloe also deliver a mild, cleansing action helping to remove impurities from the skin even more effectively.
Saponified Oils – A gentle, pH balanced surfactant derived from coconut oil and plant starches/ sugars (also known as Sodium Lauryl Glucoside Carboxylate) enhances the exfoliating experience of this facial scrub, transforming it into a powerful cleanser and exfoliator in one. This natural plant-based surfactant contains excellent hydrating and moisture-binding properties. Like all of Annmarie Gianni cleansers, this scrub will not strip the skin’s natural oils and will not leave the skin feeling dry, tight or sensitive.
Diatomaceous Earth – What could be more earthy than Diatomaceous Earth? Made from fossilized “diatoms” (microscopic algae-like organisms from over 30 million years ago) this naturally formed sedimentary mineral rock is derived from rivers, lakes, and oceans around the world. It’s chalky, the micro-crystalline substance is 85% silica, which plays a vital role in promoting beauty and resilience within the skin. It gives a unique feel to this Kaolin Micro Exfoliant formula, with just enough granular texture to remove buildup from the skin, without being aggravating or potentially causing micro-tears (like other manual exfoliants can). In addition, silica improves the appearance of firmness and tightness in aging skin.
Green Kaolin Clay Like all clays, kaolin remineralizes the skin, helping to soften, condition and rejuvenate its appearance. It also helps to absorb excess oils and toxins and toxic chemicals, while refining the look of enlarged pores. Kaolin makes a great addition to this formula, because what is an exfoliating scrub without deep cleansing and purifying benefits?
Green Tea Extract – We’ve all heard about green tea and its potent antioxidant activity, so it only made sense to add their in-house extract of green tea leaves into this formula to help neutralize harmful free radicals, which can accelerate the aging process in the skin. Rich in polyphenols, green tea helps to protect the skin from environmental stressors, resulting in reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Green tea has a profound impact on the skin!
Essential Oils: Lavender, Sage, and Lemongrass – Aroma makes a formula go round. It’s true though if you’re going to make exfoliating a skincare ritual, the scent has got to agree with you! Annmarie Gianni has carefully selected their favorite essential oils of lavender, sage, and lemongrass to give this scrub with a fresh, earthy and invigorating touch.
Essential oils are concentrated organic compounds extracted from plants that harness amazing healing properties. Lavender provides a calming effect on the skin. Sage stimulates the skin (and mood) and also delivers antioxidants. Lemongrass, with its uplifting scent, acts as a defense for the skin by eliminating impurities, keeping it clear and glowing.
